Governor Schwarzenegger Preserves Marriage For Now

.- Yesterday Governor Schwarzenegger vetoed AB 849, a bill proposed by Assemblyman Leno, (D-San Francisco), a measure that would have legalized same-sex marriage in California.

"We are tremendously grateful that the governor followed-through on his promise to veto legislation that would have derailed the institution of marriage," said Karen England, Executive Director of Capitol Resource Institute, a pro-family grassroots organization.

"Nearly two-thirds of Californians voted just five years ago that the institution of marriage is for one man and one woman only," said England. "We’re glad to see that the governor, unlike our legislature, respects the commonsense of the people."

AB 849 passed through the state senate and the assembly, by a mere single vote in each house, thus making California the first legislative body in the nation to approve homosexual marriage without judicial decree.

CRI strives to support family-friendly policies throughout California's communities and the state Legislature.
